I can say with all certainty that this morning was very productive at the level of learning. Aleksandra and I went to the foreigner's office to try to get a visa for me. What an adventure!
First you need to fill a few roles, then you must pay for these roles and then, finally you can go to the counter to the delivery of those papers and some more documents. The first thing to notice is that there is no order to the call the people. Got to be you to control who came before you and after you. The second thing to remember is that when you are finally called, you are missing 3 copies of a document ... well, we didn´t knew this, but that's okay, let's get the copies! However, while we were being treated, comes a young boy in shorts ... and what our astonishment when the workes told him that they can't receive him when he was dressed that way. Me and Aleksandra were both in shorts! And we were almost half an hour in the room without anyone noticing or saying anything!
But still we get the copies of the documents and something to eat. When we returned, we expected that no one noticed we were in shorts. The truth is that there is a sign of "No shorts" at the entrance ...
And so, we try to be met in the same, but just barely had we seated, the boy in the office showed us the exit door ... because we were in shorts!
Well, tomorrow we will have to go back but this time with pants ... Welcome to Srbija Miguel!
